Superb Cold War ThrillerBy WilfK from London , 29 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]One of the better spy thriller films with a combination of stunning aerial dog-fights between two very advanced fighter jets and a storyline involving dissident Russian scientists, freedom fighters and of course the CIA.

FirefoxBy Cyril (14 reviews) from Dundee, Scotland , 11 Apr 2009Firefox is Clint Eastwood's less favoured cold war thriller based on Craig Thomas' novel (1977) of same name. The story is about a mission given to Mitchell Grant, a Vietnam veteran pilot with post traumatic stress disorder, to steal an advanced stealth fighter MiG-31 Firefox from the Soviet Military hanger where it is developed. Firefox has the ablitiy to attain speeds of Mach five or more and its weapons are controlled by the thought impulses of the pilot ( all the piolet has to do is think in Russian ) giving them accuracy and instant control over the weapon system. This novel which the film is based on was probably based on the true story of Mossad, the Israeli secret service persuaded an Iraqui pilot to defect to Israel with his advanced MiG-21 fighter and suceeded. The film is an average thirller with some tiny lapses of reason, but if you like a nice cold war thriller, with Clint Eastwood on the lead...try this one.
FirefoxBy djmandy (1 review) from Southampton , 08 May 2008Always on my A list. This is a brilliant movie in so many ways. Saw this for the first time nearly 20 years ago and a few times since. The storyline and characters are strong, the sense of urgency and tenison at key moments and the undeniable sacrifice contribute to a powerful movie. Thoroughly enjoyable, disturbing and exciting with a plethorer of excellent British actors.
its okayBy spud101 (21 reviews) from Port Talbot , 08 Mar 2008firefox is a typical eighties movie. ok special effects ok acting and far fetched story line, so as long as you switch your brain of its okay. but not even the great clint eastwood can recuse this from the sub standard movie it is.
